of my time. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from texas seek recognition? mr. poe: i ask permission to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized. mr. poe: mr. speaker, i recently received this email from john of houston giving -- as one of the 9.2 million people whose livelihood is supported by the oil and natural gas industry, i am troubled by the recent calls to raise the money. as washington focuses on improving our struggling economy, congress has an opportunity to take our economy in a new direction, one that leads to economic growth and economic security. by promoting policies that encourage domestic oil and natural gas production, we can create 1.4 million jobs and generate $800 billion in additional government revenue by 2013. mr. speaker, john, a person that works for a living, understands better than washington elites that our god-given natural resources should be used to create jobs for americans. time to stop sending american jobs to middle eastern countries to buy their natural resour
problems, drugs, violence on the texas-mexico border, the need for education. he has controversial things like putting on a gasoline tax. all of these issues, his legacy really invigorates our current debate. >> for many americans outside of texas, 1992 was perhaps their introduction to ross perot. he had been on the national stage for a while. in the late 1980's, he began speaking out about these issues that he was concerned about. we looked in our video library and our first coverage of ross perot was in 1987. here he is speaking before the american bankers association that year. >> let's look at where we are and take the rose colored glasses off. all of these people saying the fundamentals are sound, i think we have had enough doctor feelgood. i think we are all grown. i think we are tough enough to take bad news. i think it is time to look at the facts. we have a $3 trillion debt by 1988. our debt is being funded by foreign nations at this point. the greatest nation in the history of man does not have the will to past -- we continue to bridget to pass a national budget. we continue to
to create and construct that pipeline. and 100,000 new jobs within the areas of texas and louisiana as it relates to the processing of that oil. last time i looked, canada was a friend. we buy oil from countries that hate us. and here we turn our back. and you know what canada said. china is ready to step in and help them out. is that really what we want or do we want to bring jobs to america? mr. speaker, with all that's been said, we're to the point where we need to talk about regulations and that's what this bill does. it allows seven amendments that are germane to come to the floor, three republicans and five democratic amendments. and, mr. speaker, i'm happy to yield back the balance of my time and move the previous question on the resolution. the speaker pro tempore: the question is on ordering the previous question on the resolution. those in favor say aye. those opposed, no. in the opinion of the chair, the ayes have it. ms. slaughter: mr. speaker, on that i request the yeas and nays. the speaker pro tempore: the yeas and nays are requested. all those in favor of taking this
of the same frustrations you express. >> our next call comes from john calling from san antonio, texas. sit back and give me a few minutes if you do not host: mind not a few minutes, we do not have that much time. caller: nobody has really talked about government sacrifice. the only way you are going to solve what you have, you cannot continue to pay government employees more money than we taxpayers can afford to pay. any business or they pay more money out to the employees -- we pay more money to the employees that the company takes in, that company is going to be bankrupt or seek protection while he gets rid of the problems he created by paying so much money to so many people. it is the same thing with you guys in congress. you have janitor's making $69,000 in the public sector while objectors who paid their wages in the private sector only makes $20,000. i am sorry, you are not worth it. if you want to cut the, cut the department of education. don't cut it over 10 years, cut it over one day. at the department of energy. but it today. that is a real cut. anything else, 5% here or 10% ther

minnesota, mr. paulson, and the gentleman from texas, mr. dog get, will each control 20 minutes. the chair recognizes the gentleman from minnesota. mr. paulson: i ask unanimous consent that all members have 35 days which to revise and extend their remarks, including extraneous consent. i yield myself as much time as i may consume. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. paulson: i rise today in support of h.r. 365, legislation to extend temporary assistance for needy families and related programs through the end of this fiscal year, as well as to ensure that these funds are spent appropriately. before describing the legislation in greater detail, i note that these same provisions will already approved, the middle class tax relief and job creation act of tuesday of this week. given some of the uncertainty about some of that legislation, it makes sense to ensure that the program continues to assist families past december 31, when its current authorization expires. that's the first and most important thing that this bill will do. the tanner program has been generally success
